Sometimes a Great Notion and the Kesey Legacy


Published 2008


One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1963) and Sometimes a Great Notion (1964), Ken Kesey’s initial books, made his reputation. A University of Oregon graduate, he studied with Wallace Stegner at Stanford, with a stellar cast of fellow students including Wendell Berry, Ed McClanahan, Larry McMurtry, Robert Stone, and long-time collaborator Ken Babbs.

Anticipating the April 4 world premiere of Aaron Posner’s stage adaptation of Sometimes a Great Notion at Portland Center Stage, speakers who knew him personally for decades will focus on Kesey’s creative career.

Presenters: Gretchen (Fetchin) Douglas, Boyd Harris, Walt Curtis, Mark Christensen & Aaron Posner


Producer Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission
